First and foremost...

Thank you so much for visiting this humble blog of mine. I'll try to give you guys some good reviews on the local food & sceneries especially from my hometown (yay Tawau, Sabah) so please bear with me ok 😊

Oh and just so you guys know before proceeding...

a) I never travel abroad - so you won't be seeing any posts outside of our beloved country (yet!)

b) I take all of my pictures with my puny, low megapixeled & outdated smartphone - so no professionally taken photos here as well (sad but true)

c) I never got invited to do a review - so my comments are somewhat unbias (for now)

d) I have this ongoing problem with my internet at home so I can only go online at work - so I'm sorry beforehand for any comments that cannot be reply timely (my bad)

e) I don't mind if you guys wanted to use any of my pictures - just as long as you credit this blog as well ok 👍

Also due to my own carelessness, I've accidentally deleted most of the photos that I've uploaded to Google Album Archive recently. Thankfully I found a way to recover most of them (but not all I'm afraid) albeit in a much lower resolution & quality. So if you view my past posts and there seems to be missing photos from them, I do apologize beforehand for that. I'll try to update them with newer photos should I drop by said places again in the future. So sorry folks... 😢😢😢

So here goes nothing...

Old House Cafe

Formerly known as Rumah Lama Cafe (yup, now the literal English translation of its previous name), the place has seen a revamp of sorts (and possibly a new owner maybe?) and that warrants a second visit to the eatery. Located at Jalan Masjid (near to a couple of car washes and also a Michelin tyre store) it is more spacious and chill than before; with the choices of food has also been expanded  One of the contributing factors for the latter might be because they have now opened a few spots for outside food vendors to rent. And after going through their menu, me and my partner decided to try out some Grilled Chicken Burger and Nasi Goreng Seafood (if I’m not mistaken since I can’t seem to recall the exact names of said dishes). The former was from a western food stall and the chicken patty was tender enough but nothing to shout about. My partner said that his dish was actually quite tasteful despite the very plain look so I’m just going to take his word for it. Also, we’d managed to squeeze in some satays as well and it was flavourful but again, not that memorable I’m afraid.

Warung D'Klate

Personally, I’m a huge fan of Nasi Kerabu so when we went passed the Ba Zhong commercial area and saw this establishment (they’re on the same row as Bank Rakyat) I wasted no time in dragging my partner to their place one afternoon. Sadly, it turns out to be a poor choice of timing for us since the eatery was literary packed with patrons for lunch. Even though the eatery provided pots (yup, actual big silver pots that we usually see during ‘kenduris’ and such) of delicious looking ‘lauk pauk’ to go with either white rice or the Nasi Kerabu blue rice, it was almost cleared out by the time we were there (which was only approaching noon mind you). But since we’re already there, we might as well take whatever that was available and tried out their Nasi Campur and Nasi Kerabu. Both of us agreed that the lauk were yummy; a reminiscent of traditional kampong cooking no doubt. I also spotted the Kuih Akok (a traditional Kelantanese pastry outsourced to Cakes & Co) near to the cashier counter and decided to take a packet home with me since I was always curious about their taste. It was sweeter than I’ve imagined but I do admit that it was very addictive as well. The taste is similar to that of a caramel cake so it definitely my type of snack.

Fook Yuen Darvel Bay Plaza (LD FoodieVenture #1)

On our way back from KK, my partner decided that he needs a break from all those long distance driving and made a pit stop at Lahad Datu (LD). Mind you, it has been years since I last set foot in LD so I was surprise to see the overall development of the small district. What was more surprising (and hilarious to us) was that the first thing that we saw coming into the town area was the Fook Yuen (FY) food chain. I’ve heard rumours that the owner of the aforementioned eatery does not give out the rights to open their branch to just anyone so I’m assuming that this one might at least be opened by a family member. And since we were curious as to whether or not the place looks any different from the ones in KK, we decided to drop by this branch which was located on the ground floor of Darvel Bay Plaza (LD’s current premier shopping mall, as I’ve been told).

Needless to say, we could verify that it is an authentic FY branch and we were both very impressed with the variety of food available, particularly the prawns that my partner had. Taste-wise, everything is up to the usual FY standards (which was both good and satisfying). The only thing that I would like them to take note on was that they did not seem to be using the number-calling system (even though it was available) so we weren’t informed that our drinks were ready. It seems that the staff was ‘busy’ teasing and gossiping with each other to update the patrons of their orders, which is a habit that shouldn’t be taken lightly. 


**Sorry for the angle as this is best that I can do while simultaneously receiving dagger looks from other patrons 😅
